You ask impatiently for clear direction
Frustratingly--it has not yet come
Refusing researching--wise inspection
Following our instincts we succumb

God’s silence can mean nothing
Except go ahead as we feel right
We move forward –hastily rushing
Human natures irresponsible plight

Never discerning His perfect wise will
He needs us to ask—our duty to listen
God won’t heed the deadlines we instill
His way is clear—revealing His mission

    I'm not religious, but I found this poem very nice regardless. Other than the message of faith that you include, the poem flows extremely nicely and it's a very smooth read. Cheers

    Very nice one, dear. And about Tom Cruise, maybe he is not as bad as the tabloids paint him. He is just too "extreme" about his religion! glad to meet a fellow Gosling fan!

    The faith in your heart shines intensely. This was a terrific & necessary read.

    I admire your strong, unshakable faith, Kim and you put that faith into poetry so elegantly...Might I refer you to Moonbee Canady's poetry?...I think you have much in common her - Tim
